A cerâmica grega do Castelo de Castro Marim

The Centro de Arqueologia da Universidade de Lisboa (UNIARQ) has published in 2020 the monograph number 13 of its Estudos & Memórias serie dedicated to Greek pottery from the archaeological site of the Castelo de Castro Marim (Faro, Algarve). Its authors are the Portuguese archaeologists Ana Margarida Arruda, Daniela Ferreira and Elisa de Sousa. Excavations in this town, located in the estuary of the Guadiana river, whose origins date back to the Late Bronze Age and developed during the First Iron Age, have allowed the recovery of an interesting set of Greek pottery. Of the 309 examples of pottery tableware, only one belongs to the archaic productions of Corinthian pottery of the second quarter of the 6th century BC. The rest are Attic productions of red-figured pottery and black-glazed vases, dated to the last quarter of the 5th century BC and the first half of the 4th century BC.  To these must be added five examples of amphorae from Chios, Corinth and Athens. This book is of great interest to learn about the trade of Greek products in the extreme south-western of Iberia.
